env - run a program in a modified environment
[OPTION]... [-] [NAME=VALUE]... [COMMAND [ARG]...]
Set each NAME to VALUE in the environment and run COMMAND.
Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
- -i, --ignore-environment
start with an empty environment
- -0, --null
end each output line with 0 byte rather than newline
- -u, --unset=NAME

display this help and exit
output version information and exit
A mere - implies -i. If no COMMAND, print the resulting environment.
